Best Spring Pastels

Best Spring Pastels: A Glimmer of Shimmer

Remember those pastel – or I should say, pasty – lipsticks we wore in the ninth grade? We all looked like defective Barbies with our frosty blue eye shadow and pale pink lips. Fortunately, the science behind our makeup has only improved since then, as have the trends! Today’s pastels involve just a glimmer of shimmer, rather than a chalky, unflattering consistency.

Eos Lip Balm: Be Mine

NYFW has finally drawn to a close. Eight days of incredible collections, but also incredibly horrible weather! To survive the brutally low temps and high winds, I had to keep my skin in tip-top shape, and that included my lips. I am somewhat of a lip balm aficionado, having used everything from nipple cream and cow udder balm (seriously) to fancy, flavored, department store versions.

Coconut Oil: It’s Not Just For The Kitchen

Despite the rise in popularity of coconut water people often have bad associations with coconuts because they think they’re high cholesterol. It’s actually one of the healthiest oils to cook with because it’s high in immunity-boosting lauric acid and it can help with nutrient absorption, digestion, and more.

Estee Lauder Derek Lam Collection: Two for One

Two of my favorite things – bags and beauty – from one of my favorite designers. What more could I ask for??

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Collection

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Collection: Bright Ideas

Bobbi has a way of knowing what we need, when we need it. These frigid temperatures are giving us seriously rosy cheeks, and not in the cute, flushed way – in the patchy, blotchy mess kind of way that even the best skincare routine has trouble fighting off.

Best Beauty Products of 2013

Best Beauty Products of 2013: Top of the Line

I have an elaborate 13-step beauty routine, and while I consider all 13 of those products as personal essentials, a few stuck out from the pack as the top five of the year. So without further ado, here are the best beauty products of 2013 – the ones that I just couldn’t live without. What were yours?

Edward Bess: Color Me Obsessed

When I met Edward Bess at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC, I was struck not only by his gorgeous face and locks (hair envy does not even begin to describe my feelings on that perfectly tousled mane) but also by his maturity and poise.

Bobbi Brown Holiday 2013

Bobbi Brown Holiday 2013: Glitz, Glam, and Gift Giving

The holidays are all about nostalgia, so to celebrate the season, Bobbi Brown is bringing us back – to Old Hollywood! American screens icons inspired the collection, featuring jet black ink liner ($27), va-va-voom lip color ($28), and glittery polishes ($18). And that’s not all Bobbi gotten you for the Holidays – she’s also released the Gift Giving collection.

Kim Kardashian Dark Plum Lipstick: Snob or Slob?

I’ve heard from a few friends who work with celebrities in various capacities (charity, PR, event planning…), that the Kardashians are a nightmare to work with. I’m not surprised…I’ve never been much of a fan of their “reality” show or their style, and Kim K’s new blond look – especially when coupled with goth lipstick – strikes me as a bit too Halloween-like.
